    GPS trackers for animals generally perform well. Stiftung Warentest tested six devices in the current “Test” issue (issue 3/2024). Four of them received good overall grades, two received a satisfactory quality assessment. The most expensive device Area Pets from Prothelis (219 euros/two years of use), also achieved victory at the same time. According to the testers, it located very precisely and reliably, was easy to handle and was manufactured flawlessly.
